Hasa Al Hummus is a wonderful Moroccan vegetarian soup for a comforting winter warmer. Morocco adores her soups though there are not a million varieties. Check out this hearty oriental recipe that will melt your heart away!
1. In a soup pot combine the chickpeas and water and bring to a rolling boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium and cook for 1 hour.
2. While the beans are cooking, heat the oil in a skillet and sauté the onions, garlic, and hot pepper, until they barely take on color; very slightly browned.
3. Add the mixture and the remainder of the ingredients to the soup pot and simmer for 1 hour or until the chickpeas are soft. You don't want a "bite" to the chickpeas but firm and creamy.
